Project: A contribution to the development of sensitive and isotope-selective analytical methods based on sector field - ICP - mass spectrometry for supporting the development of Gen IV nuclear reactors
- project duration
- 01-OCT-10 – 30-SEP-12
- In one of the proposed Gen IV nuclear reactor designs, lead-bismuth eutectic is being considered as the primary coolant. The goal of this PhD project is to develop analytical methods to determine impurities and corrosion products in this particular coolant in addition to developing analytical methods to analyze new, spent and experimental nuclear fuels.
